IMAGES OF MUSIC HALL PRODUCTIONS, THEATRES, AND OTHER AMUSEMENTS BEFITTING A NIGHT OUT ON THE TILES!



BUILT IN 1812,THE EGYPTIAN HALL WAS LOCATED ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF PICCADILLY, AND WAS INITIALLY AN EXHIBITION MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY
AND HUMAN ANOMALIES.
AS IT’S NAME SUGGESTED, ITS’ CAPTIVATING STYLE OF ARCHITECTURE AND ORNAMENTATION WAS COVERED IN HIEROGLYPHICS, AS WELL AS RE-CREATIONS OF ANCIENT EGYPTIAN SCULPTURES.
IT WAS AN OUTSTANDING AND DRAMATIC FACADE TO SAY THE LEAST!
SADLY, IT WAS DEMOLISHED IN 1905
IN 1873, IT BECAME A VENUE RENOWNED FOR IT’S MAGICAL ENTERTAINMENTS, AS WELL AS A HALL OF MYSTERY UNDER THE NEW PROPRIETORS JOHN NEVIL MASKELYNE  & HIS PARTNER, GEORGE A. COOK.
THIS IS A REPRODUCTION POSTER ADVERTISING THE WONDERFUL MAGICIANS KNOWN AS THE “MAHATMAS”.
THEIR PERFORMANCE KNOWN AS “ THE MAHATMAS OUTDONE” PREMIERED
 ON 29 SEPTEMBER 1891.
IT WAS A JOINT COLLABORATION BETWEEN  JOHN NEVIL MASKELYNE
 AND CHARLES MORRITT.
ONE OF THE MAHATMAS WOULD BE PLACED IN A CABINET WHICH HAD CURTAINS ON ALL OF ITS’ SIDES, AND DESPITE BEING
SECURELY TRUSSED AT BOTH ANKLE AND WRIST, HE WOULD VANISH, ONLY
 TO RE-APPEAR AT THE BACK OF THE AUDITORIUM....!

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ

All of our posters are printed onto high quality photo paper using a high quality printer.

Our prints are sent in durable cardboard rolls so that they reach you in pristine condition.

These posters are meant to be affordable reproductions of vintage posters that are rare and hard to acquire elsewhere. We endeavour to digitally restore our images to the best of our ability, but please remember that some of these images are over 100 years old and will show signs of ageing and have the odd crease.  Our posters look great on the wall but may not stand up to a thorough examination. I fully admit the small print may be blurred and slight pixelation may occur on certain prints. These are fun items, not works of art.

Also note that on certain movie posters, visible folds or tears are to be seen. This is due to the originals being sent in this state to the movie theatres or railway stations when released.

All images will have a white border as this is necessary in order for the print to be in proportion.

There may be instances where small print is illegible, or there may be some blurring or pixelation on certain prints. PLEASE NOTE that they are not fine art prints, or highly detailed works of art.

Because of the age of some of our posters, a few small imperfections may be reproduced. These should be visible by looking at the larger images within this listing. Some prints may have marks or creases as a result of this. Paper can often degrades with time, and sometimes an image reproduced from the original that may reflect this.

If you are unhappy with any of our reproduction prints, we  offer a full money back guarantee.

Should you have any issued with items you have purchased from us, please email is straightaway.
